Bottle. Pours hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Slightly malty aroma with a little alcohol. Sweet taste with well balanced malt and alcohol, spices and big ripe fruit. Again this is a typical belgian blond ale, but this one stands out, with it’s power from the alcohol. Nice carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

Lovely big fruity aroma, lots of yeast on the nose, cloudy orange in the glass, with thin foamy head. Lots of flavour, big and rounded, little sweet with the alcohol present late on. Some spices, fruit (orange, citrus, resin). Liking this one!

Good beer, pours a darker golden yellow with a large white head, it smells of fruits and spices. Taste is intricate, loads of spices with some exotic fruit, some malts in the background that are not overly sweet. Alcohol is not overly present, did not expect this to be 10.5%

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance was a golden red almost amber colored body with a slim half finger white foamy head that dies within less than a minute. There is an adequate sticky lacing that graces the sides of the glass.
The smell was a super nice spiciness up front with a deep malty breadiness coming through strong and then I get some light coriander and clove as well as some peppery tones. There is a light citrus that enters in as it warms.
The taste is somewhat a malty sweet breadiness with a decent blend of citrusy flavors spreading around my mouth. There is a slight spicy yet sweet aftertaste with sweet sticky finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium and comes across somewhat sessionable surprisingly enough for 10.5% - big wow from me. Carbonation is fairly smooth for a Belgian IPA though I think I like how everything comes across and coats my mouth and tongue.
Overall, wow, I actually wasn’t expecting this one to be this good and am thinking this would go great with a pepperoni pizza to even grilled shrimp. My mind is racing right now with all of the pairings I could do with this. I wish it was in my distro.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light caramel color with a golden malt aroma. Tast was simple for such a high alcohol content beer. Some malt flavor throughout with a little sweetness. The sweetness was of chewy caramel mixed with some spice. A decent beer that masked the alcohol content well.
